For a while there was uncertainty as to whether it would take place, but happily, the Fête des Tuileries is back this summer! This great news has been welcomed by Parisians and visitors to the city alike. It’s a glorious opportunity to experience the family-friendly atmosphere of the funfairs of yesteryear. Your Hotel Albe Saint-Michel team heartily recommends this outing with family or friends in one of the most beautiful parks in Paris.
An old-fashioned funfair
All you have to do to reach the funfair from your Hotel Albe Saint-Michel is walk along the quays and then cross the Seine to the Jardins des Tuileries, situated between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde. Amidst the manicured lawns, in the shade of the chestnut trees and under the benevolent gaze of statues, you’ll find the fairground with its carousel of wooden horses, hook a duck, dodgems, Ferris wheel and many other traditional attractions. You’ll be irresistibly drawn by the scents of candy floss, waffles, toffee apples ...
A fun and family-friendly occasion
There’s no loud music and lights. Here, you can take the time to savour every moment as you stroll around amidst the rides, games and booths. Access to the site is free; you only pay for the attractions. Take a little while to have some fun between a visit to the Louvre and a shopping spree on the Champs Elysées. Or spend the entire afternoon at the fair with your children. Finally, why not come back after dark for a romantic Ferris wheel ride with Paris illuminated at your feet?
The Fête des Tuileries is one of the favourite events of Parisians during the summer. It enchants children as well as adults, who also enjoy the beauty of the setting. Treat yourself and your loved ones to all the fun of the fair at the Fête des Tuileries, open until August 29th, during your stay at the Hotel Albe Saint-Michel.
